vaginal odour normal?


I know that an increase in vaginal discharge is normal but what about odour? I took a shower this morning and I can literally smell the odour while sitting down right now. Or could an odour be a sign of some sort of infection? Ever since yesterday I've had pains in the upper right side of my stomach just in the one spot. I've done a lot of googling, read about appendicitis/gallbladder etc and am a bit worried now.

As far as odor goes, I'd talk to your dr/mw about it. Pains in your upper stomach could be growing pains (especially if you don't have a fever). Google = worry. lol.
I've had pains (almost like a burning sensation) in my upper left quadrant for over a month now, and the dr has told me every visit that it's just the way LO is growing.
Feel better hun... and back away from Google!!! lol

I would totally mention it to your midwife or doctor, the increase in discharge is not meant to be smelly and it may be a sign of an infection. I have had tonnes of infections this time around and have foul smelling discharge... I can smell myself after I shower too its pretty disgusting.

I have had a lot of infections this time around and they are usually coupled with a foul odor. NO fun

As everyone else said, an odor is usually associated with an infection. I'd definitely mention it to your mw.

During my first 12 weeks I had Bacterial Vaginosis and this had a foul odour, just ring up midwife/gp tomorrow for a swab to be taken and then they can give you the adequate cream/medicine to clear it up. I know that during 3rd trimester it is important to have infections checked out sooner rather than later as it can bring on pre-term labour. xx
